Dummy + Geo - Vessel 11

Always tantalizing, when an emerging band carves new elephant trails in familiar sounds. Take Daffodils, for example, the breakhrough song by Dummy, which more or less sounds like Stereolab is covering a song by My Bloody Valentine. In the song’s climax, the band discharge in a shot of Yo La Tengo-esque guitar noise to keep things interesting. Every song by this band from LA has a likewise exciting, not-obvious twist.

Those addictive cross-pollinations are the canvas for original topics that address “the burden of modern life, consumerism, environmental collapse.” Interior design, marine pollution, the psychology of commercial architecture, and nuclear testing are all covered. Dummy is therefore certainly not a band that only does it for the sound alone: tonight on the Big Red Boat we immerse ourselves in a wonderful musical universe, a kind of Jean Giraud illustration cast into a pop band. Indeed, who wouldn’t want to see that?


Life is beautifully strange and Geo embraces it with dancepunk from the cracks of the earth. Their self-titled EP is a cocktail of no wave, post-punk and weird funk, which is so addictive that Bandcamp decided to list it as essential release. Geo shapes an estranging world of mutant funk that is fueled by dissociative vocals. Here the grooves dictate the songs, while wired guitars and vexing synths keep them company. A surprising crossover between bands such as The Contortions, The Fall and Liquid Liquid. Please do come and dance to it.
